Inserting a Chart

The chart retrieves data dynamically from the grid, so if data in the grid changes, the chart is updated automatically. You create charts to portray data graphically in your reports.

To insert a chart:

  1. Do one of the following:

    • From the toolbar, click Add and select Chart.

    • From a blank report, click add chart.

    • From the report body, right-click and select Add Report Content, and then select Chart.

  2. Click Setup Chart.

  3. In Select Source, do one of the following:

    • Click Models, and select a data source to create a new grid that is stored in the Hidden Sheet.

    • Click Existing Grids, and select a grid that already exists in the report to use as the data source for the chart.

  4. Modify the chart using the options in Chart Properties.

The chart is displayed in Chart Designer.
